This 1,500 pages volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions issued during the year. It will be a valuable resource for diplomats, government officials, scholars, journalists and others with a serious interest in international and United Nations affairs.



Asia and the Pacific

An overriding concern of the United Nations in the Asia and Pacific region in 1999 was securing Iraq’s compliance with its unmet obligations under Security Council resolution 687(1991). Since the cessation of UN disarmament inspections and long-term monitoring operations in Iraq, following the withdrawal from that country in December 1998 of the United Nations Special Commission and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and the ensuing military strikes against it by the United States and the United Kingdom, Iraq had not allowed the UN inspectors to return.
